Linux kernel 2.6.15 offers 'full' InfiniBand support

Filed under
Linux

The latest version of the Linux kernel offers full support for running a Linux cluster on InfiniBand, with the addition of a driver for storage systems based on the high-speed networking standard.

Version 2.6.15 of the Linux kernel, which was released earlier this week, includes an InfiniBand (IB) SRP storage driver. The addition of this driver means that Linux systems can talk to storage over an IB network.

Roland Dreier, one of the Linux kernel maintainers handling IB support and a technical leader at hardware vendor Cisco Systems, said on Wednesday that this driver will encourage the uptake of IB-based Linux clusters.
